Last week, I introduced all of you to L’Oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator and this week I had a chance to try out this exciting new product and put it to the test. Here’s a recap of my experience and what I thought about this product:
When I went to the my local store to purchase L’Oreal’s BB Cream Illuminator, I found the packaging modern and easy to notice on the shelf. And I loved how the product benefits are simply and clearly called out on the package so you know exactly what this product is offering and don’t have to work too hard to find it. L’Oreal’s BB Cream Illuminator currently comes in two shades: Light and Medium and because I am in between two shades with my post summer golden hue, I opted to buy both and blend the two colors to get my perfect shade
Light Shade (Left) & Medium Shade (Right)
As you can probably see from my swatches above, the light is a bit light for my skin and the dark is a bit too dark, but the blend of the two was the perfect combination for my skin. I immediately loved the light sheer texture of this product and the hint of a fresh floral scent. Right when I put this product on my face, I noticed that it instantly blurred my flaws and gave me a lovely sheer coverage. It did a really good job of evening out my skin tone, yet still allowing my skin to show through, I’d call it a light to medium level of coverage. I loved the warm luminous glow it gave to my skin too.
I was also rather impressed with the skincare benefits of this mass product. Not only did it do a great job of immediately and noticeably changing the look of my skin, but it also offered appealing skin enhancing and protecting benefits too. It delivered a nice level of long lasting moisture with an SPF 15, the perfect level for my days out and about. The bigger surprise came after using this product for a week, I noticed that my skin was a bit smoother and healthier looking. And over time, these benefits are supposed to get even better and give your skin a more even tone and a more refined texture. And all this for under twenty bucks makes it even more appealing and impressive!
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with L’Oreal’s Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator because it delivered the benefits promised on the package (my skin looked really good!), it’s super affordable and most importantly to me is that it stands up as a noteworthy competitor among the BB Cream product landscape.
Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator instantly evens, illuminates, perfects, moisturizes, and protects skin. In one week, tone and texture are improved and skin is healthier looking.
